Robles kept Belmont off balanced the entire game.

He retired the first seven batters he faced before giving up his lone hit, a bloop single to right field. Robles would allow two walks, one in the fourth and another in the sixth, but worked around the free pass each time. He finished the game retiring the final 11 batters he faced.

Meanwhile, he got all the run support he would need before he even took the mound.

Third baseman Kevin Corey hit a solo home run with one out in the first to put APSU in front 1-0.

The Govs offense would tack on a pair of runs in the sixth – one on catcher P.J. Torres’ sacrifice fly and another on left fielder Ridge Smith’s single – to provide a little breathing room.

However, the day belonged to Robles (5-2) who won his third straight contest. He struck out a career-high nine batters in the contest, allowing one hit and two walks, facing three more batters than the minimum.

The one-hitter was the first by a Govs pitcher since 1997 when Craig Smith tossed a one-hitter in a seven-inning contest against Morehead State.

Ridge Smith and left fielder Cayce Bredlau each went 2-for-4 to lead the Govs offense which posted nine hits.

Belmont’s Patrick McGrath (2-6) surrendered three runs on nine hits in seven innings in the loss. First baseman Drake Byrd had the Bruins lone hit and was 1-for-3 on the day.

Austin Peay and Belmont resume their three-game series with a 4:00pm, Friday contest at Rose Park.
